The Samvera Partners have agreed upon the desirability of having one or two dedicated staff to further the work of the Community. It is suggested that one be a Community Manager and one a Technical Manager. We are advised that the costs of employing someone in these roles likely ranges between $165k and $210k per year each. Such funding requirements are considerably beyond Samvera's income at the present time and would be in addition to the Community's regular outgoings. At the Partner Meeting in Salt Lake City (October 2018), the Samvera Steering Group was asked to charter a Working Group to consider Samvera's fund raising activities and to make recommendations aimed at attracting a much greater income stream.
The Fundraising Working Group (FWG) is asked to consider and report on three specific matters:
It should be noted that the work of the FWG probably touches on the work of at least the Samvera Marketing Working Group and that of the Contribution Model Working Group. It is anticipated that the FWG will liaise with other WGs as appropriate.
Following the review of the FWG's final report by Partners, a decision will be taken to sunset the Group or to ask it to undertake further work.
General communications from the FWG will take place through the Samvera Community mailing list.
Meetings take place at 08:00PT, 11:00ET, 16:00GMT to accommodate the eight hour time zone span.
